Chapter Summary

In 1529, Charles V made separate treaties with the king of France and the pope, bringing the Italian wars to an end. Peace with the pope paved the way for papal concessions of both a cruzada and a dos quartas in the Spanish kingdoms. The immediate result of the papal concessions was to embroil Isabel?s regency government in acrimonious negotiations with the Assembly of the Clergy for the dos quartas. The negotiations between the Assembly and the crown illustrate royal reluctance to use coercion to obtain payment as well as ecclesiastical ability to limit royal fiscal demands and keep control of taxation in the hands of local entities. This chapter suggests that, as with its negotiations with the Cortes and cities, the crown?s ability to access ecclesiastical rents relied on consultation with and the consensus of the Assembly of the Clergy.
